On 10 Woods misses the fairway and chops out. He’ll have to get up and down from about 80 yards to save par on one of the toughest holes on the course. On 6 both Kisner and Koepka miss the green on the par 3. Two tough up-and-downs coming.
Koepka at 15 under. Tiger finishes T3 at 12 under. Good god is that Rickie Fowler’s music?! Y’all have Koepka covered but there’s a host of top sticks within four shots of the lead. I think there’s a good chance Koepka stalls while Rickie takes the W at 14 under two shots ahead of Tiger Woods.
Sunday Sunday at Bellerive Raceway: Tiger goes out in 30 takes over the leaderboard and the tournament for a nanosecond slumbers home in 37 — ouch city — and in the end is an afterthought (if Tiger Woods can ever be an afterthought). Brooks Koepka shoots a Steady Eddie round of even par (that is 68 — level for him) and wins by a three-ish.
Iron off the tee for Woods on 14. Fairway. Woods tw0-putts for par. Still 3 under. On to the par-4 14th. On the par-3 13th Woods flies it right over the stick on the green but about 25 past the cup. Birdie putt coming.
Rickie Fowler pars 16 to stay at -8. Jon Rahm birdies 17 to move into a tie for second at -9 two back. Brandon Stone nearly jarred an ace on the fly at 16 and damaged the cup in the process: Woodland makes par to counter Koepka’s bogey. Koepka’s lead is suddenly down to two shots.
